    Super light with multi-sport and multi-day versatility.

    The lightweight Osprey Talon 44 Backpack rides on your back comfortably whether you're spending a night out in the woods or thru-hiking in the desert for a weekend. The designers at Osprey molded the Airscape back panel and the lightweight aluminum frame somewhat like a chimney to ventilate any excess heat so your back isn't a sweaty mess when you reach your campsite. Biostretch covers the shoulder straps and waist-belt for maximum comfort and breathability while you hike, and the ErgoPull tabs cinch across your waist for an ideal fit. If you pack light, this top-loader can fit all the supplies you need for a full weekend out on the trail, and you can remove the top lid for quick day hikes while you're out there.

    The Talon 44 has a lower zippered compartment for easy access to your sleeping bag, and it has straps for your sleeping pad. It also features an external hydration sleeve that's easy to refill, side stretch pockets that can fit extra water or some snacks for the trip, two zippered pockets at the waist-belt for lip balm and sunscreen, and one front mesh pocket that you can slide your map or a book into. The shoulder straps have Stow-On-The-Go attachments for your trekking poles when the trail is nice and flat, and lower InsideOut straps compress the pack down quickly and simply. This pack even has two ice tool attachment loops with bungee tie-offs so you can continue using it throughout the year.

    Lightweight and feature-packed

      While most lightweight backpackers wouldn't consider the talon 44 "UL", I think it strikes a great balance between being lightweight and having too many bells and whistles.

      Pros:
      The fit is easy to dial in and the extra hipbelt padding on the new version is quite comfy. The side pockets are easily accessible with the pack on, and the side straps can be routed underneath. Zippered bottom compartment makes getting to pack contents less of a headache. The new backpanel breathes well and provides a bit of rigidity along with the aluminum frame. Spacious - with a 9 lb baseweight I can use this for multinight trips and am even able to fit in a BV450 or a sixpack.

      Cons:
      The shoulder strap pocket could be bigger. The stretch mesh on the pockets can be a bit delicate for bushwhacking, but have held up to PNW winter/spring trips so far. Hipbelt connection starts to sag at heavier weights (i.e. 35+ lbs)- it performs best in the mid 20's and below.

      Overall, the Talon series has become my go to for most trips, from dayhikes to lightweight backpacking. Definitely recommend it!

      Osprey Talon 44, The Light Weight.....

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The perfect lightweight backpack for the one to two night trek.

      I recently got this pack on a steal of a deal off eBay. I wanted a lighter overnight pack for my current gear. My (now sold, and replaced with a Kestrel 48 Liter) REI Crestrail 70 liter was too big to use as a overnighter pack.

      I saw this on eBay, watched it, and when the auction got close to ending I took a chance, I placed a bid and won.

      So 3 days later it was in my hands, and when I received this slightly used pack, I immediately gave it a bath and in three more days it was out on the trail.



      First, I assumed I would have to downsize what I carried. Going from a 70 liter to a 44 liter, you would have to downsize. What surprised me the most was with some ingenuity I was able to get all the same gear from my 70 liter into this 44 liter.



      After loading up the the pack, and the car I took a day trip with it to Hidden Rocks. It held up nicely and was extremely comfortable.

      I took it thru it's paces and after 5 miles of hiking. The Talon 44 passed with flying colors. Now That I own two Ospreys, I'm a big fan, and as I'm looking to add a third pack, my pack of choice is the Osprey.
